Quick maintenance tips to keep your home as good as new

Keeping up with the daily house cleaning and home maintenance can be a daunting task especially for the new homeowners. A clean home is all about smart work and less about the time involved. However, it doesn’t have to feel overwhelming. You can always start with the basics and then move


Let’s start with the room.


Start by making the bed.

Making the bed creates a significant difference, and it takes only a couple of minutes to do it. Simplify your bedding as much as possible and regularly change the sheets, covers to evoke freshness.


Clear the clutter

Remove the unwanted things from the bedside table, study table, etc. It will help you to work and concentrate. Regularly dust your books and to add a little colour to your table, a small plant pot can also do wonders.


These are a few ways you can keep your room clean and tidy. Besides, regularly cleaning the room, window panes and dusting would also help you to keep your house new.


Now let’s look at the regular maintenance stuff:


Open that stuck window

If you go too long without opening a window, dirt deposits make it difficult to open. It’s not rocket science, but a little grease or a more proper lubricating agent will help you to open it. Clean it frequently, once you’ve got the window moving again.


Fixing the cabinet doors

Sometimes, when the cabinet door doesn’t close correctly, it gets irritating, but we tend to ignore it. Setting such trivial stuff would make a lot of difference.


Regular servicing of the appliances

Frequent servicing of devices like the refrigerator, microwave, gas burners, washing machine, etc. would help them to last longer and keep your home fresh and clean.


Free up that sticky lock

After years of use, locks get loaded with dirt and small particles which can make the lock mechanisms stick and not work as smoothly as they once did. You can use some dry lubricant to squirt in and free that sticky lock.


Fixing the toilet leaks

Water leaking from your flush tank will not only cost you money, but it can also cause damage to the bathroom floor and premature wear of the toilet’s internal workings. Call for a plumber if you can’t fix it on your own.


Paint to renovate

Give your house a makeover by repainting the interior/exterior and let the colours talk. However, if repainting the entire house gets difficult, you can always retouch it wherever necessary.


Home maintenance is essential, and in the long run, it will help you to keep the place free from any damage. The gated communities under Aparna constructions have their team called APMS who would take care of all the home maintenance work. So, if you have any issues, give them a buzz and let them take care of it.
